Our Team


Warmest Hello! 

Coming from a background in Early Childhood Education, I had been shown the value of connecting with each unique child, treating individuals with respect, and honoring personal strengths. Those early childhood teachings, combined with graduate art therapy training, prepared me to continue to truly “see” each of the emotionally disabled high school students I spent nearly two decades with in a public-school setting.

In private practice, I continue to be honored to share the lives of people who walk through the studio door. Enticing and expressive art materials offer clients new ways of “speaking” their authentic truth and enriching the exploration of their life experiences.

In creating Circle Art Studio, the hope has been to provide a safe and uplifting space for all in our community to explore, create, and express themselves with art materials—no previous art experience necessary! I look forward to sharing your journey.

Namaste!   “I bow to the divine in you.”

Here at Circle Art Studio, I combine my love and passion for art, meditation, and connection with people when offering individual and group art therapy, as well as mindfulness coaching for all ages. Join me in a studio setting where you will create art and learn how to apply mindfulness to everyday challenges.  Individuals have grown to feel happy, content, and even compassionate to themselves and others, despite having dealt with earlier anxiety, depression, and/or trauma.  Over the last 30 years, I have had a wide range of experiences, from working in an inpatient hospital to an outpatient rehabilitation program, to multiple school settings.  This diverse background, which includes considerable international exposure, has helped me to create an accepting and warm space —one in which to feel comfortable while learning new skills, building resilience, and artistically expressing yourself.  I look forward to hearing from you.
